Fitz And The Tantrums' 'HandClap' Remix
We're excited to premiere the Dave Audé remix of the alt-pop band's rising hit.

Fitz And The Tantrums pick up where they left off on “123456.” The alt-pop band’s new single is jam-packed with as many hooks as previous hits “HandClap” and “The Walker,” and boasts another absurdly catchy, sing-along chorus. When you factor in the song’s feel-good vibe and cute, neon-sprinkled video (below), the 6-member group has an early Song Of The Summer contender on their hands. Frontman Michael Fitzpatrick reveals that the track’s upbeat energy belies a deeper meaning. “It’s actually quite an emotional song personally,” he explains.

“Before writing the song, I was questioning my talent, fighting off insecurities, and trying to find a way to keep going. The music to ‘123456’ literally pulled me out of a funk and hyped me up. And so the lyric goes: ‘hyped up ready to go, I got my eyes on the prize, I’m sick of feeling the lows I wanna roll with the highs.’ It was the turning point of the record for me, capturing the moment when optimism, hope and confidence were found after a dark period as an artist trying to write for this album.”

Fitz And The Tantrums will unleash their 4th LP later this year. They are supporting the release with a co-headlining summer tour with Young The Giant. See all the dates and buy tickets here.
